DE-CLUTTER FOR SPRING: 4 ITEMS YOU CAN DITCH FOR GOOD
Are you ready to de-clutter your home but not sure where to start? We’ve got some great tips for anyone ready to let go of their inner hoarder and transform their home into a more organised, uncluttered haven.
If you have a wardrobe full of clothes but are still constantly complaining that you have nothing to wear, it might be time to take drastic action. Be brave and let go of every single item that you haven’t worn in the last 12 months, as well as anything that doesn’t fit you anymore. Get a market stall or sell what you can on eBay, and send the rest to goodwill – if you end up with a little cash in your pocket and some warm fuzzies in your heart (as well as space in your wardrobe) then you can consider it a very good day.
Chances are that you don’t need seven phone chargers, three hairbrushes and two wallets. Everyone has at least one item that they can’t seem to help collecting, but the bottom line is that multiple items that perform essentially the same function are taking up space without contributing anything positive to your life.
If the food processor you were gifted last Christmas is still sitting in its box, it’s time to sell or donate it. Don’t feel sad or guilty; instead focus on the fact that someone out there will get some use out of it, and be proud of yourself for being decisive enough to pass it on to someone more deserving. The same goes for unused iPods, speakers, microwaves, fans and hairdryers.
This is probably the most difficult part of the de-cluttering process, but don’t forget that memories live inside you, not inside the jewellery box you got for your seventh birthday. So if you’re only using it because you can’t bear the guilt of throwing it out (or even worse – you’re not using it at all!) do yourself a favour and let it go. The memories will remain.
